i am assuming for bass. I personally think cedar is best for bass but there are some other ones over there as well. Sheilds is decent but hasn't been good to me in recent years. But cedar is pretty consistent action and usually has some quality fish. i am sure a few other guys like katoguy will jump in and be more educated then me. i know a fun slp lake is Kelly dudely but not the best for a tourney probably. good luck

Whacker, what date will this be as there will be several contests in the area over the next few weeks.

I would guess you must have a small number of boats to be able to draw in the morning. Cedar, Shields, Mazazka, & Roberts all can be fun and large enough for 15 boats. I was on Cedar on the opener and today (pre-fishing). I was on Shields Sunday. (We did quite well on Shields - staying quiet about Cedar for now.)

If you want to go a little further, Tetonka/Sakatah, Jefferson/German, and Madison.

We'll have 35 boats on Cedar. The access only holds about 25 rigs, so I imagine the landing will be pretty full early by 5 a.m. or so.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
